UML 2.0 - Static Infrastructure

What is UML 2.0 really like? I have tried to answer this question in two ways:

Below are the inheritance diagrams for the static classes. There may be many errors, partly because I have great difficulty understanding the specifications. One problem was a style that specifies the properties of subclasses in the superclass chapter, this gives the illusion of reverse inheritance. More important was the deciphering of the merge relation. One problem was the terminology; the target is less than the source. Another problem was that I found it difficult to find the packages and the relationships between them. I am not at all certain that I got it right. A third problem is that there be a number of empty subclasses that I have missed.

I have based my diagrams on the specs as they were recommended in June 2003. I am hopeful that the FTF will make the specs easier to read. (And also nore consistent)

I use three formats for the diagrams:

The diagrams are based on the 2nd revised submission from the U2Partners ad-2003-04-01 .
